It’s a gross, grungy, disgusting summer-in-the-city tradition: the muggy 90-degree day or, worse still, the 99-degree day.
But this summer has been conspicuously different in New York City. Not one 99-degree day in Central Park. Not a single day that the temperature even approached 90.
For just the second time in 140 years of record keeping, the temperature failed to reach 90 in either June or July.
Al Gore couldn’t be reached for comment - he was probably too busy cleaning his office (shown below).
